A little sarcastic, a bit obsessed with reality tv chef competitions, and fully committed to always winning movie-themed trivia.

Of course I’m also in love with photography and everything related to love, but you’ve already seen every photographer say that; and it’s true!

My true favorite thing? Going above and beyond for my clients by being more than just a photographer. I’ll be your timeline creator, dress fluffer, boutineere pinner, family wrangler and schedule keeper. Let’s chat about what you would like to capture today!

From our first chat to hanging your photos proudly in your home, you’ll get the absolute best wedding photography experience, because I’m dedicated to capturing the memories for you. I get a rush thinking that, long after the confetti has been swept up, a little part of me will be there in your story. When your grandchildren open your wedding album and see a tear rolling down your husband’s cheek, it will be because I kept it for them.
